The American Ninja Warrior Indianapolis City Finals gave us some fantastic moments. Meagan Martin became the second woman this season to earn a spot at the National Finals. Jake Murray did a black flip up the Warped Wall, and the field of Vegas finalists got a little larger.
But that did mean we had to lose a few faces. Here’s the 15 Ninjas who won’t be moving on.
- Lorin Ball: Out on Rolling Log
- Fred Thorne: Out on Swinging Spikes
- Drew Knapp: Out on Rolling Log
- Dan Yager: Out on Rolling Log
- Brandon Mears: Out on Salmon Ladder
- Theodore “TC” Tronquet: Out on Swinging Spikes
- Zack Kemmerer: Out on Floating Steps
- PJ Granger: Out on Disc Runner
- Kevin Hogan: Out on Rolling Log
- Jonathan Cooley: Out on Swinging Spikes
- Andrew Rowland: Out on Salmon Ladder
- Adam Stroup: Out on Fly Wheels
- Alex Bienz: Out on Fly Wheels
- Bryce Foley: Out on Fly Wheels
- Dr. John Murray Adams: Out on Swinging Spikes
It was a fairly wide variety of obstacles that took out these Ninjas.
4 went out on the Rolling Log. 4 went out Swinging Spikes. 3 went out on the Fly Wheels, which were modified from the Qualifying course to only have 2 wheels, instead of 3.
One of the biggest surprises of the night was Lorin Ball’s exit. He was the fastest Ninja to complete the course in Qualifying and is an all-around strong contender. However, the Log Roll tripped up a few of the City Finalists, and Lorin was one of them.
